[Discovery review starts at 22:06]
Tony and Laurie start off the news with the confusing reports that the stars of the upcoming Kelvin movie may have been unaware that they’re going to be the stars of the 2023 Star Trek movie until AFTER J.J. Abrams’ announcement last week. Then they dig into comments from John de Lancie and Akiva Goldsman at last week’s Star Trek: Picard junket, discussing Q’s needs, the Borg Queen’s role, and Picard’s new-but-it’s-not-a-thing android body—and take a quick look at The Ready Room for more Picard clues—and chat about the new Prodigy toys coming from Playmates.
Then it’s a deep dive into “The Galactic Barrier,” the latest episode of Star Trek: Discovery, which leans heavily into this season’s theme of uncertainty, leading into a Gilligan-inspired theory. They wrap up with a look at Doug Jones winning the very first The Chair award and Noah Averbach-Katz’s Kickstarter project, to be directed by Anthony Rapp.
Let us know what you think of the episode in the comments, and let us know which review should come first next week, Discovery or Picard. Which are you going to watch first?
